Why do you skimboard? and why do you invest so much time into it?
Well for me, my brother got me into it and even though its not that big around here. For the people in the area im good at it. And its a totally separate group of friends where age dosnt matter and who you hang out with outside dosnt just skimboarding. We discuss outside things but even still its a common group of people that have enjoyable ideas.
I also always love a challenge and with the release of new skim dvds and online videos there is always something someone is better at and I like to try it and get better. There is a lot of competition in the sport and I like that.
Also I got good at it very fast and I pour and invest so much money in it mostly because its fun. What makes it fun? around here doing the biggest thing on the smallest of waves around the world. And then people seeing you do it. Its fun because of audiences and the group of skimmers who push you. Its a constant push from other people.
Around here we have a group of elite skimmers who have been around "forever" and then we have the newbs like me and some others and some newbs who have been accepted into this group of people.
Its a great atmosphere with places like this and Its fun and thats why I skim.
What about you?
